What is the Importance of Dental Cleanings?

As children age and learn healthy dental habits, it is beneficial to get a professional cleaning at Cuddly Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics twice each year. Using state-of-the-art equipment, a biannual professional dental cleaning removes plaque from teeth while polishing teeth for a brighter, healthier smile. During your child's appointment, our pediatric dentists, Dr. Yvonne Felli and Dr. Ajikwaga Felli, can give you and your child tips on ways to better clean their teeth at home and learn if there are certain areas that need more care. A teeth cleaning also gives us the opportunity to identify any issues in the mouth that might need treatment. Getting professional teeth cleanings are a crucial part of keeping up your child's oral health so make an appointment at our Allen, TX office.

What Can I Expect From My Child's Teeth Cleaning?

Your child's dental cleaning will begin by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on his or her enamel, which is often difficult to reach on their own at home. Advanced tools are used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To start, we will use a device with ultrasonic technology to loosen bigger areas of tartar and plaque with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Then, a fine handheld instrument, like a curette or scaler, will remove any remaining buildup. Every tooth needs to be treated individually to get all the tartar and plaque. Once the teeth have been scaled, the enamel will be polished to remove stains. It is recommended that children receive a professional fluoride treatment after the cleaning to help build strong teeth and prevent cavities. Throughout your child's cleaning, someone from our team can help you come up with an at-home routine for good oral health by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that will help your child focus on their needs. Dental cleanings can be advantageous for your teeth, overall health, and wallet so be sure to schedule twice-yearly dental cleanings for your child at Cuddly Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics.
